Abstract

With the increasing popularity of dental implants, the explantation of fractured implants has become a major challenge for clinicians. Several tools can be used for the removal of osseointegrated implants; however, few of these have the characteristics of easy control, selective cutting, and rapid healing. We report a case of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) developed immediately after piezosurgical removal of osteointegrated implants.

The BPPV may be an unpleasant complication of piezosurgical removal of osseointegrated implants and may cause considerable stress if not identified correctly and managed properly.
